He sees his role as executing the plans our Tupuna has for us and that we as 4th Gen do the work as a collective to ensure our taonga whakapapa isn’t lost or in the wrong hands. Abbey’s goal is to have Zero extinction to the bottom of the ocean floor to the sky’s above. He is safeguarding our rohe to uphold the mauri of his whānau past, present and future.
